Securing Remote Computers Accessing Office Computers Via Remote Web Workplace
Posted on 2012-03-12
I have a client with a Windows SBS 2008 server that is providing access to the office computers, for those who have a computer in the office, and to the Windows 2008 Terminal Server, for those who do not have a computer in the office.
Some people have company laptops that they take home, some people work on compnay desktops at remote offices and some people work from home using their personal computers.
I am worried about the people working from home using their personal computers. My concern is that they can have or they could get a key logger malware app on their home computers that reports back the Remote Web Workplace URL, their usernames and their passwords. The Remote Web Workplace URL and the user’s login info would give the malware writer/operator access to the company’s data, not unlike how bank accounts and online gaming accounts often get cracked.
I am looking for a solution to secure access to the office network via Remote Web Workplace in such a way that I do not have to install any software on the home user’s personal computers.
